1993 Chevrolet Caprice Q&A

1993 Chevrolet Caprice Question: Caprice starts up rough and bogs out when trying to accelerate

If I let the car gradullay increase speed without pushing the pedal too much..it seems to run ok...I replaced dist cap..wires and plugs..This all happened after i accidently pressed the gas pedal like 3 times before starting..it has run rough ever since..any suggestions?..Thanks you n advance Rex -
Answer 1
It may be that your Throttle Position Sensor is worn out.The fact that you pressed the pedal down 3 times should not have hurt anything. ( By the way, it does nothing these days for a car, there are no more carburetors, only do it to clear out a flooded condition which almost never happens any more because of the computer ) http://repairpal.com/throttle-position-sensor Have your Throttle Position Sensor checked -
